Greetings fellow monsters! Sincere apologies from the recent lack of updates. We’ve been terribly busy doing what we do (working, holidaying, working some more, chomping up irritating little imps), but I’m here to let you know we’re still around.
Today I feel like embarking on a journey filled with nostalgia. Yes, I’m back to 8-bit heaven that was, and still is, Super Mario for the Nintendo Entertainment System. If you have ever played the game before, I’m sure you would have tried it. I did… and failed, of course. But the seemingly impossible feat has now been done. My friend, I’m talking about jumping over the freaking flagpole that appears right before the castle.

If you loved the Old Spice commercials, you might find this interesting. Women of all shapes and sizes tell you how shaven they like it:
I personally like it either clean or scruffy.
Thanks to Simon Owens for the video!
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Afghanistan’s FIRST indie rock band, Kabul Dreams.
Less than a decade ago, when the Taliban ruled Afghanistan, a concert like this would have landed them in jail. Playing musical instruments was banned. Singing was allowed, but only songs praising Allah or the Taliban.
Today, Kabul Dreams, as the band is named, is paving the way for a very modest but growing local rock scene.
About 100 Afghans and foreigners gather around a makeshift stage with improvised lighting and a sputtering sound system.
Nothing like some jazz piano to up your day’s tempo, here’s Aaron Goldberg with OAM’s Blues. Mad kick-ass drumming accompanies. For those who noticed, yes, the track can be found in Windows Vista’s Sample Music folder. Probably the only one thing that the system is good for.
If you’ve ever wondered how supermodels like Gisele Bündchen and Alessandra Ambrosio were discovered, here you go, courtesy of The New York Times:
“The girl has to be tall, she has to easily maintain her measurements, she has to have the desire to be a model.”
Sounds to me like a recipe for image issues, but that’s the way the beauty / fashion industry works I suppose.
Who we are
Pick your poison
